Huge Dilema

November 13, 2010


I don’t know to be happy or sad. They are coming (YAY!) on a Thursday (…..).
My boys or my class. I am really really really troubled.

I know it shouldn’t be a dilema, of course, class comes first. But I’m such a fangirl, I really feel the panic. To top it off, I have to work that day and it’s obvious things won’t work out anyway unless I can split myself into at least 3 bodies. To be honest, I’m reluctant to spend that money because I’m not happy with how the record labels are trying exploit the fans by jacking up the prices so high. It’s sickening how local entertainment labels/ stores/ concert organizers intentionally up the price of CDs and concerts of Korean artistes just because they are from Korea and anything labelled “Korean” can sell in Singapore.

OK. Forgive my whining and angst. This is just a fangirl trying to get it out of her system and surrender to reality.

I am sorry, I can’t help it.
I really need to share this, get it off my chest and proclaim my love for them.

Presenting, 2AM’s latest MVs!

미친듯이// Like Crazy

전활 받지 않는 너에게// You Don’t Answer My Call

I looked like a complete idiot when I smile to myself while listening to my iPork and eating lunch at the same time today. It’s really worth it!

I got to say, those who watched 개인의 취향 (Personal Taste) would know that 슬옹 오빠 didn’t do that well. To be fair, he was a singer, not an actor. I was surprised that he was chosen to be the lead in the MV for 전활 받지 않는 너에게, but I can see that there was just a little improvement in his acting. Of course, I may be biased, but I think it’s good enough!

OK, fan girl signing off.


End Oct… 기대해!

Saint o'clock

My first exposure to Korean was through dramas, and although that was one of the most interesting way to pick up a language, its not the most convenient one. I can’t work and watch drama at the same time. So I need to look for an alternative desperately.

That’s when I turn to K-Pop. Music is portable and the lyrics function in my iPhone is the BEST invention ever. It allows me to bomb myself with Korean anytime, anywhere. I love ballads and have minimal tolerance for anything that has a rhythm that’s faster than my heartbeat. It was one of the reasons why it took me quite some time to adapt to KPop songs and then to eventually fall in love with it. K-Pop has far too many dance tracks and auto-tuning for my liking (I’ve made my peace with those now). So I was looking through the new releases (Wonder Girls, anybody..?) and decided to just give every song a chance. That’s when I found out about 투에이엠 (2am).

Ok. Everyone who knows K-Pop will know that 투피엠 (2pm) is the more popular group. To make a long story short, I was (slightly) interested in 2pm then and only knew about 2am through 2pm’s own reality show Wild Bunny. You know, the infamous Brown Eyed Girls Abracadabra parody they did. I went to Google their (2am) songs, happily switched alliances and pledged my love and loyalty until today. And you can bet on it that I will continue to do so.

Actually, the whole point of the long introductory is to gush about 2am’s upcoming album Saint o’clock scheduled to be release end October (ONE MORE WEEK!!)! 2 of their teasers 이젠없다 (Nothing Now) and 사랑한다 말못해 (Can’t Say I Love You) is already up on their official weband they really really make me very very excited!


Not exactly the most helpful entry in terms of self-improvement but tell me, what better way to start the blog with more excitement and OOMPH than to gush over my favourite boys in entire Korea?

I’ll promise an equal amount of enthusiasm in my studies.
